The car stopped at the stop sign and then proceeded into the intersection into the path of a dump truck that was traveling west on county Highway E, according to a Columbia County Sheriff's Office news release.
The sheriff's office said the driver of the car was Nancy Duchow, 61 of Pardeeville, Wis.; and the passenger was Lori Laper, 52 of Wyocena, Wis. Both were pronounced dead at the scene Tuesday.
The driver of the dump truck, a 47-year-old man from rural Poynette, was transported to Divine Savior Healthcare with non-life-threatening injuries.
